A group of Samburu men on Monday risked their dear lives to rescue a baby giraffe after it got stuck in Ewaso Nyiro river.

The baby giraffe got stuck right in the middle of the crocodile infested river for more than four hours before the heroic rescue. Fortunately for the baby giraffe and the brave men, crocodiles would have been less likely to attack in the fast flowing river.

This is a perfect example that human beings are capable of the most heartwarming acts of kindness towards wild animals.
